Summary

Looking to add some depth behind Jamaal Williams, the Packers selected Dexter Williams with the 194th overall pick (22nd pick of the sixth round). Williams was a four star recruit coming out of high school but largely disappointed in his time at Notre Dame. He dealt with some off the field issues (missing all of the 2016 season) and was suspended for the first four games of the 2018 season. He made the most of his opportunities the rest of the season though, rushing for 995 yards and 12 touchdowns on only 158 carries (6.3 yards per catch). Williams is 5'11, 212 pounds and ran a 4.57 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. He has a nice blend of strength, speed and agility and is a patient runner with very good vision. The biggest concern is he doesn't have an elite strength and was not much of a pass catcher at Notre Dame (only 22 career catches). Considering the fact that Jamaal Williams has a very similar profile, but is a very good pass catcher, Dexter Williams was picked more for his ability to provide depth as opposed to challenging Jones or Williams for playing time his rookie season.
